Faculty and instructors are facing instructional challenges never faced before from having to rapidly move their courses online. They have learned a lot, but have a sense “they can do more!”. Faculty and instructors are also starting to realize not all of their students will be in class or online next year – there will be more “hybrid” teaching which requires a new, flexible approach.
Questions from faculty include:
- How do we continue to successfully engage students in their learning?
- How do we support students who have anxiety about returning to the classroom but still want to push ahead with their program of studies?
- How do we continue instruction for students who cannot be on campus for a variety of reasons, including the need to self-isolate due to exposure to COVID-19?
- How do we teach students in class and online at the same time?
- How does assessment work when some students are in class, some are online and some switch between the two?
Four takeaways from this webinar:
- Learn how to use this flexible course framework that offers a combination of online, synchronous, and face-to-face options (hybrid) in a course where students are able to choose when and how they attend (flexible).
- Develop successful strategies to engage online and in class students in a single class session.
- Understand how HyFlex options prepare an institution (or program) for any other situation requiring an immediate shift to fully online.
- Learn how assessments for and of learning can work when students are studying the same course in class and online.
